I use this weekly check-in to update you on how I am doing in my weight loss journey.
I am finding that I am updating every two weeks at this point. It seems like this is working for me so I will probably keep with that for now.
Journey So Far
My overall journey began in November of 2015. I had just turned 30 and was seven months postpartum. I joined Weight Watchers and had some success. In January of 2016 I discovered Whole30 and it really transformed the way I eat. I love Whole30! It was helpful that I had been trying to eat well immediately before. I loved finding new recipes and trying new foods.
Exercise has been slow going the entire time. I can get my food on track, but for some reason I can’t seem to find the time in my head or in life to get a workout in. I’ve started to space out exercising throughout the day at work which has been really helpful.
I do take my lunch walks, but I really haven’t been focusing on fitness. Overall I have lost thirty-three pounds just by eating better and moving more.
Have I made changes? Yes. Can I do better? Absolutely.
Here are the things I want to discuss:
- Goals for the next week
Down one pound over the last two weeks, but I’m not entirely happy about that. I haven’t been eating well, but I’ve been exercising my face off. I take at least 4 walks a week and I get in all my reps. So exercise is great, yay.
Food hasn’t been the best, which is why I am starting another Whole30. It’s time, and I want to be done before Thanksgiving because rolls.
Still no Couch to 5k. My ankle doesn’t feel 100% when I workout so I am really taking it as I go. I want to do this.
I haven’t hit my six mile a day goal, but I think when I do finally get on and do Couch to 5k I will in no time. I am hovering just around 5.5 miles with just walking.
I dropped a pound and have been moving more in recent weeks.
Goals For The Next Two Weeks
Plan all of my meals.
Work on my ankle strength.
What are your fitness and weight loss goals for the week?
